Determination !!

Ok so in reality nothing more fits in my little cape cod cottage. As I showed you this morning hubby Bought this home for me..Well it bugged me sitting in the middle of the living room floor.So I tried to figure out what to do with it.Got the measure tape out and no not even with rearranging the whole room is it fitting. Checked the sunporch no, to many windows in this house.Aaaaggghhhh what's a girl to do? Well I found the one place it could be crammed and decided I' ll do it my self.In the bedroom.Mind you I had to move a steamer trunk full of stuff,a step shelf,a dresser with clothes,a picture, a heavy desk and attempted hubby's gun case but he had the keys on him so it only got moved enough to move everything else...Here it is sitting in the middle of the floor bugging me... Here it is after my determination....Boy am I gonna be sore...So hubby comes home early and see's the bedroom torn apart and says boy I wasn't expecting this today.I say "If I didn't do it it would have been drug out to the garage and never brought back" He was so kind as to get his gun case moved into my computer room.....So here it is sorry I couldn't get a full pic as the bed goes across the middle of the room. I need to do a little twicking but I love it here....
Click on the above pic to see the antique photo better she holds a bunny toy that looks just like the hand did one sitting behind it...
Oh I love the old picture of the little boy in the dress.I call him Robert.Found him at fleamarket it was love at first sight...
Those things sticking out of the old watering can are carnival sticks..
Not bad to get done in less than a hour..I'm so happy to have it! I can't wait to light it and line the mantel with some tealights.....
Oh and after I was done there was a knock on the door and the sweet old man across the street bought homemade fudge his wife made.So sweet and the perfect treat after all that work.
White,chocolate and peanutbutter Yummm. How lucky am I? Warm Blessings!~Amy

I think your fireplace and mantle are perfect in your bedroom. I've always wanted one in ours. You did a good job!
I just poured myself a fresh cup of coffee. Wouldn't it go nicely with your fudge? Mmmmm!

Girl, you are UNBELIEVABLE! You got all that done in one day. I would have still been deciding where to put it. It looks great all dressed up. I love the baby boy pic.

I too live in a small home, so I feel your pain. I really like your Christmassy header! You must have great energy.
